Minster Lovell is a village in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, by the river Windrush, 3 miles from Witney. Minster Lovell is made up of three parts: Old Minster, Little Minster, and New Minster. A large part of New Minster is the Charterville Allotments, which were set up by the Chartist Land Company between 1844 and 1848. Five estates were purchased, subdivided, and built on, and settled by shareholders who were chosen by lottery. Minster Lovell is the largest of the Chartist estates and meant the area was once known as Charterville. Old Minster includes St Kenelm's Church, Minster Lovell Hall and the Old Swan Inn. Rows of Cotswold stone buildings, some with thatched roofs, line the main street of the village. There is a three arched bridge across the river, and a large village cricket ground beside the water. A short walk from the cricket ground is the 14th century church of St Kenelm, and behind it, the ruins of Minster Lovell Hall, now belonging to English Heritage. The extensive remains that can be seen today date primarily from the house built for William Lovell, Richard III’s henchman, in the 1430s. A dovecote and farm buildings built at the same time adjoin the ruins of the Hall.
